I saw a woman at work be screamed at by a customer. This man singled out my friend because she is a woman and he cussed her out.
As a female firefighter I was sexually harassed and it went further than harassment by the men I worked with. I also remember being catcalled on the street when I was a kid and it would make me uncomfortable. I want to feel comfortable walking down the street and at work.
Every morning when I go to school, an old creep start to talk with me and my friends, I just ignore him. But he’s so scary!
On my 30min walk home from work today I got yelled at twice by men in passing cars. It’s so disrespectful.

got on the elevator at Lynn, MA train station with my bike at 8:30 a.m. A tallish man in his 50s I think followed me on. Once the door closed, he got very close ogling me, but I kept looking away, used my bike as a barrier. Got off at platform (lots of commuters) went to far end. Turned he was gone.
Walking to the train this morning in Logan square, I passed a group of four men talking. They all got quiet and just stated me down as I walked by in my loafers, blouse and knee-length skirt. I said “Stop being creepy!” loud enough for them to hear but I don’t think they spoke English.
Just got harassed while getting off an elevator. Thank goodness they were getting on & I was getting off so I didn’t have to share any more time with them. 2 guys, pretty young, “hey ma, hey baby, how you doing?” I said I’m not ye baby, that’s not my name. “I was just…” Nope, it’s disrespectful.
A 40-50 year old man, bald, dressed in black, on the subway stared relentlessly at a girl wearing shorts and then caught my eye. When he got off the train at st georges cross he waited for our carriage to pass then leant forward at the window and made an obscene kissing mouth movement towards me.
